As for DE, i havent tried to keep any shrimp so I cant tell you much. I do have snails that do very well.

The downside is that I want a different color substrate ... the upside is that i'm only out 12 bucks if i get something new because the litter is so cheap
1 - what made you decide on kitty litter? I have read that it has a fantastic CEC so I am thinking of using it
2- Do you dose any ferts?
Also I think it looks great for a one species/no hardscape tank

I just want to learn. I appreciate everyone who teaches.
